Coronary artery disease(CAD)is one of the major life-threatening diseases. In addition to traditional risk factors including age,sex,smoking,hypertension,and diabetes,genomic studies have shown that CAD has obvious genetic predisposition. In recent years,the rapid advances in genomics shed new light on early diagnosis,risk stratification and new treatment targets.

Key words: coronary artery disease, genomics, single nucleotide polymorphisms,genome-wide association studies
